Streusel Sweet Potatoes

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

3-1/2 lbs medium-size sweet potatoes
3/4 cup maple flavored syrup
1/3 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
Topping:
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/3 chopped pecans

Instructions

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a shallow 1-1/2 quart baking dish or casserole. Cook potatoes in a large pot of boiling water 20 to 30 minutes or until tender when tested with a fork. Drain; cool under running cold water. Cut in thick slices and mash with a potato masher or an electric mixer. Stir in the orange juice, syrup and butter. Put into the baking dish and bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Prepare the topping by mixing the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in a medium size mixing bowl. Cut in butter as for a pie crust until it resembles very coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans. Remove potatoes from oven and sprinkle with the topping mixture. Bake for an additional 15 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
